Welcome to Reception
In Reception we are encouraged to explore, create, be curious, messy and have fun. Through all of this, we learn!
All of our learning is focused on the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning'; Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creating and Thinking Critically. Our classrooms and outdoor area are set up to enhance your child's learning and development of skills in these areas.

In Reception your child tells us what they love and we teach them all about it! We try not to have a plan of projects already decided for the children as we like to ensure your child loves to learn and the way to do that is to learn about what they love. We have frequent conversations about what we are loving at the minute and staff try their hardest to create lots of learning opportunities around their ideas.
Educational visits are at the heart of learning here at Broadfield. We believe that these visits allow a child to be immersed in their learning and bring their learning to life, giving it purpose.
We try to plan an educational visit or experience every half term. Your child will bring home a letter including all the details and prices of the visit. You will also receive a text to remind you of the visit. Please ask any of the staff for more information.
Please ensure your child brings spare clothes to school to keep on their peg. These may be needed for a number of reasons including messy play and accidents.
Follow your child's teacher on Class Dojo! We post lots of photos of your child enjoying their learning and also post lots of important information reminders too.
